LeBron James Writes Heartfelt Letter To A Terminally Ill Teenager


With the NBA season in full swing, you might not think a superstar like LeBron James would have time to make a young man's dream come true. But you don't know 'Bron.

Indianapolis, Indiana high school student Emanuel Duncan has a terminal illness known as Duchenne muscular dystrophy, and to be blunt, no one knows how long he'll live.

That is why Duncan wanted so badly to meet his hero, LeBron James.

Duncan relayed this goal to columnist for The Indianapolis Star Gregg Doyel. Duncan said,

LeBron penned a touching letter to Duncan, along with a signed jersey, shoes, promise bands and headphones.

In the letter, LeBron wrote,

I think we're all looking up to LeBron James and Emanuel Duncan today.
